in america as well. so the media has a little catching up to do. but they are missing the key >> gretchen: that is stirring the pot. a common goal of ending the western way of life. you and your neighbors must not miss what the media is, they are missing who is organizing all of the american dream rallies that happened over the weekend. who did the unions go to to be able to file permits to get the places to have these rallies,? you will not believe it. we'll tell you in a minute, come on. >> hello, america. the violence is spreading like wild fire. bahrain saw tens of thousands rally and promise to continue until they see a successful revolution. it is the home of our fith fleet. libya is most on fire. hundreds of thousands of fled to egypt and tunisia to escape the fighting. our war ships are on the way. rebels have control of most of the country except for the capitol compound. protestors flash with the antiprotestors took to the streets including the heavily fortified green zone. 12 civilians died and more than hundred injured. the chinese government is involved. it is dismantling pro
of women in america. she passed away before the commission could finish its work. the report they released spurred action across the country. it helped galvanize a movement led by women that would help make our society a more equal place. it has been almost 50 years since the roosevelt commission published its findings. there have been few similar efforts by the government in the decades that followed. that is why last week here at the white house, we released a new comprehensive report on the status of women in the spirit of the one released half a century ago. there is a lot of positive news about the strides we've made. women have caught up with men in seeking higher education. women today are more likely than men to attend and graduate from college. there are also reminders of how much work remains to be done. women are still more likely to live in poverty in this country in education, there are areas like mathematics and engineering where women are vastly outnumbered by maile counterparts. this is troubling because we know to compete around the world, we need to harness the talents of
planning provider in america. what we saw was that women's health care is being treated as a political issue and that has us concerned. many of the one in five women who have been to planned parenthood and folks are seeing this as having nothing to do with the budget or the deficit. it has to do with a political vendetta against women's health care. >> we are joined by two reporters. one is with roll call. go ahead with your question. >> hall -- what do you describe the funding askm of planned parenthood with the stress of the budget deficit and the federal funds that are going to planned parenthood? how you justify given the state of the economy which may be in recovery and the things that lawmakers have to choose from in terms of what we can afford in kent, how'd you justify spending on plant parroted? >> that is a great question. what is important to remember is what the house leadership did was that they singled out planned parenthood and said they could not provide health care services under the federal program. by singling out planned parenthood, they did not save a dime of the b
of us will face difficult problems. the question is, will america be the america that it's always been? we do not get our authority by might. we get it by the way we treat each other. and so these folks are going through some difficult times, these are the same people that this loan program is about, these are the same people that showed up time after time, sitting in the front row of something i call my foreclosure prevention program, with tears running down their faces. many of them have never missed a mortgage payment, have worked hard every day and have done everything that was required of them. these are our american neighbors, they are the american neighbors that sit in ohio, they're the ones who are in california and new york. those are our neighbors and they are in a time of need and we're talking about a $1 billion program to try to help people as they're struggling, trying to get up after an economy, by the way, where regulation failed them. they find themselves in these difficulties, in many instances, buzz people were not regulating -- because people were not regulating pro
on the line for democrats. go ahead. caller: hi. the last time i checked, america was a place that all people could live. i think muslims are people. christians are people. we should tolerate one another. if you want to get angry in this country, there's enough things to get angry about. there are loss of freedoms. there are interfering into other people's countries and their businesses and their ways. we are not going to be satisfied in this country until we run ourselves all the way down into the dirt. host: again, if you like to contact us, you can dial in on the phone numbers. we have set aside our fourth phone line for muslims in the u.s. this morning. 202-628-0184 is the number for you to call and you can also contact us via e-mail or twitter. from "the washington post" this morning, "house hearing to bring debate on islam to the fore." host: that is from "the new york times -- that is from "the washington post." good morning. caller: in republican -- i am republican. i wanted to vote for george bush, but i felt there was going to be a war. i was told that republicans usually engage in
this focus on startup america which is a public/private partnership to encourage entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses. things that in the old solo division, basically what we want to focus on, physical capital, human capital and innovation. as i said, nobody in the white house wants to hear about human capital accumulation and productivity enhancement but when the president says outeducate, outinnovate and out innovate the rest of the world it is coming straight out of the solo growth model. i think a growth agenda is what is warranted when we are talking about when the future is rooted in this let's have a business cycle driven by investment by exports by raising the skill level of our work force and to me, that is the private sector sustainable kind of growth. now let us talk about the deficit and the issues of debt facing the economy. as all of you know what matters is what is our debt to gdp level and what matters is as the simpson-bowles commission revealed that is not what is important. conflating long and fiscal challenges with the deficit which is big this year is ve

for offering a resolution noting the many contributions that she made to america and express the condolences for her family. because, you see, mr. president, for we women before 1960geri was a force of nature, a powerhouse. she changed the face of politics. she changed the way women thought of themselves and what we believed we could accomplish. on july 11, 1984, when mo walter mondale called geri ferraro and sctd her to be his vice-presidential running mate, an amazing thing happened: they took down the men-only sign on the white house. they took down the men-only sign on the white house. for geri and all american women, there was no turning back, only going forward. america knows ger implete as a political phenomenon. i knew her as a dear friend and colleague. we served in the house together in the late-1970's and when she left in 1984 to run for vice president, i left in 1986 to run for the senate. we were among the early bird women in the house of representatives and as early birds, we weren't fraid to ruffle some feathers. we had some good times and passed some good legislation. it must
america and central america, out in the rose garden today getting on the record, reassuring the american people and expressing solidarity with the japanese people, dylan. >> thank you, mike. joining us now is sharon squasoni, a nuclear expert with the center for strategic and international studies. thank you for taking time to meet with us this afternoon. how capable is the technology that exists right now in actually evaluating what the threat is there? in other words, is criticism of the japanese government or the american government or whoever it is well placed, or do we not even have the ability to know what might happen here or what the risks are? >> those are all great questions. the truth of the matter is this is a very quickly moving crisis. things change from hour to hour. but in terms of the radiation threat, i think we definitely know how to monitor that. the problem at those plants is that the radiation is high enough to endanger the workers. and so, that is what has been slowing down some of their efforts. it also has an effect on a lot of different things. you know, when yo
. and three times i will ask, god, please, god, please, god, please continue to bless america. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from tennessee, mr. cohen, for one minute. mr. cohen: thank you, mr. speaker. i rise in opposition to chairman upton's dirty air act. in 2007, the supreme court issued the massachusetts vs. e.p.a. decision directing the e.p.a. to examine greenhouse gas emissions and their impact on the public health. e.p.a. conducted a highly credible peered review scientific analysis under the bush e.p.a. and the obama e.p.a. this was not a political analysis. it was a scientific analysis. but that has not stopped the chairman from trying to legislativively undermine scientific fact. according to the e.p.a., president nixon's clean air act will prevent 230,000 premature deaths and result in $2 trillion in economic benefits in 2020. but chairman upton has decided with much help from corporate polluters, lobbyists that the fiscal and physical well-being of the american people are less important than big oil's import

that is, that would end up being the largest tax increase in the mystery of america on the american people -- if you're not going to do it through legislation, we'll do it through our regulations through the environmental protection agency. and so there was an endangerment finding. the administrator of the e.p.a. had the endangerment finding, and it was based on the ipcc flawed science. nonetheless, it was there. and so they started on a route to regulate co2 through regulations. let's stop and think about what that would be. the cost that we have determined over a period of ten years now to take over the regulation and have -- tph-fbgs a type of cap-and-trade -- in fact a type of cap-and-trade through regulation would be about $300 billion to $400 billion a year. i estimated what that would cost an average family in oklahoma. it was about $3,000 for each family that pays, that actually files a tax return. you have to ask the question: what you get if you pass this. first of all, i think most of the people right now are concerned with the price of gasoline at the pump. it's going up again.
or what combination of sources will actually turn out to be best for america. and that should be cause for those of us here in congress to be extraordinarily careful in trying to predetermine what sources should either win or lose. we're always talking around here about we need to steer clear of picking winners and losers, and yet that seems that's what we do all the time. a diversity of energy sources provides the best proving ground and insurance against overreliance on any one source and a healthy economy provides the best demand for the cleanest sources available. winston churchill once said, "on no one quality, on no one process, on no one country, on no one route and on no one field must we be depend hent. safety and certainty in oil lie in variety and variety alone. now, winston churchill was talking about oil but his words are just as applicable to our need for diversity in all of our types of energy. now, finally, the need to make our energy domestic to the greatest degree possible is something that we've all known. we all know that we need to do this, but we have failed to do

society of north america, the islamic circle of north america. they have stood with us as trusted allies in speaking out against violence and in defense of religious freedom. solidarity among people of every religion in the face of its attacks of people of any one religion is respect for religious freedom and action. in concluding, as a religious community our catholic faith commits us to defend and promote the rights of religious freedom for all as a moral priority and a human responsibility. this common commitment to religious freedom is at the heart of american life. it is also an example of a world where too many doubt people of religious -- of different religions can live together in peace and mutual respect. as other countries wrestle with how to treat religious minorities, let them look to our nation where we work to ensure that our muslim sisters and brothers are treated with dignity and their religious identity and beliefs must be treated with respect. let them see with people with hard won religious freedom living out our commitment living life in the full for the identity, int
about it. think about the history of innovation. what sets america apart is so many of our great inventions start out in small garages and labs with driven, inspired people who have great ideas, developed them and then they take off. i mention companies that have started this way yesterday. hewlett packard, apple, google, and there are hundreds and perhaps thousands of others. they started from humble beginnings, and they grew spectacularly, creating jobs for millions of americans and lifting up our economy and standard of living. i know an inventor who invented sky vodka, and the vodka he drank disturbed his stomach, so he figured out biologically and chemically what it was, and he invented a vodka called sky vodka. small inventor. that company was subsequently sold, i think for a great deal of money, but it started with one man who had a stomachache from drinking vodka. now, this may be just one type of example, but apple is certainly another type of example. a garage many years ago in california, and out of that emerged this giant company. so these companies start from humble
inflation, right here in america, you can feel it, you can see it, that may well result in a slowing of the economy, but it's a direct result of what's been happening in the middle east. bill: just underline the point, when you're trying to get a recovery and solidify it, this is not what you want. stu, thank you. arthel: in spite of that news the top money man in the country, federal reserve chairman ben bernanke, is saying that rising gas prices are not yet posing a threat to the u.s.: >> the increases that we've seen so far will obviously be a problem for a lot of people. -- while obviously a problem for some people do not yet pose a risk to the recovery or the maintenance of overall stable inflation. arthel: and we are minutes from the opening bell on wall street. stocks are heading for a gain today, and futures are up. bill: also, new amateur videotape into "america's newsroom" out of libya's capitol city of tripoli, protestors celebrate whag they thought was gadhafi's flight from the city. there were reports that hundreds of protestors set cars and buildings on fire in late feb
after bank of america because apparently they have a huge amount of profits and they didn't pay any taxes in 2009. we're going to talk about that in a second. 100-some-odd protesters. it's not london, but they're getting there. we had huge protests in wisconsin as well for many weeks on end. and they had, you know, some success in galvanizing people. and as you're about to see, they also cost the republicans some serious poll numbers. and that has an affect as well. but one thing it didn't have an affect with is governor walker. today in defiance of a court order, he came out and said i'm going to public my law taking away union rights. he says you can't pub lush it. it has to be done by the secretary of state. he said i don't give a damn. he had it published on the website of the legislature and skipping the law, skipping the courts. courts, what are they for? he thinks he's a tough guy and i guess he in hsmoli hielunr,ouno over ronald reagan, which doesn't make any sense. but he's ignored all the public opinion and guess what it's done to him? it's cost him a lot of popularity. wa
a lesser america to the next and trillions in unpaid bills. a new report from the government accounting office documents what we instinctively have known, waste and duplication in government cost taxpayers billions of dollars every year. early estimates say between $100 billion and $200 billion. and experts say we could save tens of billions of dollars by aggressively prosecuting health care, waste and abuse, just as we saved millions of dollars going after health care fraud when i was attorney general. the people of connecticut, indeed of america, will not tolerate and should not tolerate billions in waste and duplication. it must be cut. that's where we should focus. not on the thoughtless slashing of essential services that provide a safety net for our most vulnerable citizens. when we cut, let's be smart about it. the people of connecticut are sick of the special breaks and tax loopholes that have been protected for far too long, tax breaks to companies that send jobs overseas, subsidies to huge oil and gas interests; some of them the most profitable companies in the history of the
